Microsoft today released a new Xbox One Preview Build to users in the Alpha Ring. This new build comes with new update screen which will display some basic details about the update, as well as a link to a video (for more information) or the option to go to Home. It also includes several bug fixes, find the full change log below.

NEW FEATURES:

  • New Update Screen – When your console downloads a system update, a new update screen will pop up the next time the console is powered on. This update screen has some basic details about the update, as well as a link to a video (for more information) or the option to go to Home. Please provide us your feedback to this experience via Report a Problem and the Preview Forums!

FIXES:

  • Xbox App – Fixed an issue which would cause game streaming to stop when launching a new game.

KNOWN ISSUES:

  • Controller – Upon resuming from connected standby, you may be prompted to update your controller firmware when no update is available.
  • Cortana – Cortana may take a long time to respond when activated while playing certain games.
  • Notifications – Some users may not receive certain types of notifications.
  • Game Clips – After capturing a game clip, the game clip fails to automatically post to the Activity Feed (if your profile is configured to do so). Workaround: Manually view game clips in Profile > Captures > Manage captures and post to the Activity Feed.
  • EA Access – The EA Access app may indicate you are not an EA Access subscriber when you are. This does not affect your ability to download or play games from the Vault, or receive discounts on EA titles.
  • Settings – Ease of Access – When enabling the Mono output setting in Ease of Access – Audio, Settings becomes unresponsive, crashes, and fails to launch on subsequent attempts. Workaround: To launch Settings, perform a hard reset (hold down the button on the front of the console for five seconds until it fully powers down, then power it back on).
  • Settings – Display & sound – The Audio output page is under construction and some of the new settings are not yet functional. New support is planned for Dolby Atmos for home theater, Dolby Atmos for headphones, and more in upcoming builds. An announcement will be made when these new features are ready to try out; enabling these settings now will have no effect.
  • Wireless Display – The Wireless Display app fails to launch and immediately crashes to Home.
